Chevalier

Chevalier is the third part of a trilogy of childrens circus performances directed and performed by Kalle Lehto. It's a one man circus in which horses are performing various circus acts with their instructor. The show consists of equestrianism, acrobatics, juggling and of course many dazzling premier horses. The ideas for the acts come from traditional horse circuses (mostly Philip Astley’s) only with a weird humorous twist. Here is a chance to see highly inventive hobby horse action with contemporary circus giving traditional circus a high five.

Rauli and Sauli Kosonen: O'DD

A contemporary circus solo for the future.

O'DD oscillates in a transformation of visions, sounds, light, surfaces and science fiction. It is the next new direction of contemporary circus: its future and its dreamed reality that leads us to the transient world of being human.

In addition to a contemporary circus performance, O'DD is an architectural creation, a futuristic vision of the traditional circus tent, a white pavilion. The imaginative space made possible by architecture creates illusions and tricks of the light. The audience is inside the space. This is something we have not seen before.
